On October 18, 1984, the Rossberg family opened the doors of Torrance Bakery to the public. With only 1200 square feet of space and 7 dedicated employees, we set out to serve the people of South Bay the freshest, most delicious cakes and pastries in town. The people of South Bay took quite a shine to us, for over time the bakery became a city favorite and kept growing in order to give its customers the best products and service. Today, Torrance Bakery serves the South Bay from two locations with a total of 14,000 square feet, 78 employees, a separate Wedding Cake Showroom and a Sandwich Shop.
Throughout our 28 years of existence, we've enjoyed several relationships with neighboring companies including Honda, Toyota, Exxon Mobil, Mattel, Marriott Hotels and multiple event venues. We're also proud to have garnered numerous awards and accolades, and some of our claims to fame include Modern Baking magazine's 2007 National Retail Bakery of the Year, being voted Best Bakery in Daily Breeze's "South Bay's Best" since 1993, Torrance Chamber of Commerce's Best Place to Work award and the California Small Business Award. Being located in the South Bay has also provided us with the opportunities to work with great people and companies in the TV and film industry as well as the military and aerospace industries.
While such "Hollywood glamour" spotlights the bakery on a national level, our true commitment and passion lies with the people and community of the South Bay. We participate in charities such as the Torrance Memorial's Holiday Festival, Providence Little Company of Mary's For Our Children Event, and we regularly donate to local schools and churches. We also provide jobs and learning opportunities to the people of South Bay by partnering with El Camino Community College and The YMCA, where we teach aspiring chefs, bakers and decorators our tricks of the trade. These are our ways of giving back to the community that has given so much to us.
As we continue to thrive in the years to come, Torrance Bakery will continue to deliver quality goods and excellent service to the South Bay community. It is our first and most important way we give back to the community - by always giving our best!
